Today, I've got a nice, easy lesson for anyone who finds themselves struggling to understand the modes. People tend to obscure the simplicity of the modes behind a wall of unnecessarily complex ideas, which makes them very daunting for beginners and even intermediate and advanced players to learn.
This lesson uses a combination of mnemonic devices and simple three-note-per-string, two-octave scale shapes to teach you each of the seven modes in under ten minutes, in a way that you will truly remember and understand. For those who are more interested in theory and fretboard memorization, this method also provides a solid introduction to those topics as well.
